Research project

In 2018 a synthesis of carbonaceous monoliths with developed micro-, meso- and macroporosity was published (Bulavová, P.; Parmentier, J.; Slovák, V.: Microporous and mesoporous materials 272 (2018) 155-165). The candidate is expected to provide research project (limited to one page A4, free form), in which summarizes his/her opinions/suggestions regarding following two problems:

  1. How to reduce time needed for the synthetic procedure?
  2. How to increase size of mesopores in target material?

For further information, please contact associate professor Vaclav Slovak ().

The first round of the selection process will be carried out by assessing of the submitted documents.
